MOSCOW, November 11. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin gave instructions to sign an agreement with Armenia on creating a united regional air defense system in the Caucasian collective security region, according to a document posted on the government’s legal information web portal on Wednesday.
‘I decree to accept a proposal by the Russian government on signing an agreement between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Armenia on creating a united regional air defense system in the Caucasian collective security region," the president’s instruction read.
"I hereby instruct the Defense Ministry of Russia to hold negotiations with the Armenian side with the involvement of Russia’s Foreign Ministry and sign the said Agreement on Russia’s behalf upon reaching consent and permit making minor amendments to its draft approved by the government," the document said.
The Air Defense Committee under the CIS Council of Defense Ministers earlier noted that "further integration based on the regional principle, i.e. the creation of common or united regional air defense systems in the East European, Caucasian and Central Asian collective security regions is a priority development area relative to the CIS united air defense system.".
